Silver Innova with number 5179, i think, having LCLC sticker stuck on the rear bumper. I was behind you as we battled the mayhem all the way from Belandur towards Marathalli on the ORR.

I thought it was T-bhp sticker but was not sure. I passed the car and at the same time my favorite song came on and being alone and my windows up I was singing quite loudly and lost track of where the car went.
Dear fellow BHPian if you have tried to flash lights or honk I am truly sorry for not being attentive. Later after the song was over I slowed down looked around but I think I lost the gentleman. If you are a regular on this route I will try definitely to stop and say "Hi". Sorry if you tried to communicate and the singer in me did not allow the petrolhead to pay attention

Finallyyyyy! Somebody spots me. Yes, it was me Ambivalent_98. Boy oh boy, were you in some hurry or what. The way you overtook me gave me jitters. You stopped too close to my Vista's rear bumper, then took a sharp left and again a sharp right to overtake me. And then kept on flying. You took the Paud road exit while I continued on the highway. I guess the Vento TDi is too addictive and there is all this adrenaline rush all the time.

I also spotted the following:

What: Red Mitsubishi Lancer Cedia with 1787(IIRC) reg no
Where: Near Seasons Apartment Hotel in Aundh
When: Around 6 PM
Sticker: 'got BHP?' on the boot lid.

The cedia looked really good mate. Who is this?

Hey Ajay sorry for not being attentive at all. Actually as I said I was listening to natya sangeet and Kumar Gandharva started Prabhu aji gamala... and I was hearing it after many days. So your sticker was black on orange but I didn't get a good look. And I don't think I was in "Attack" mode when I drove past you. Especially the way you describe it.

No offense meant at all. Infact, I was kinda envy at the way the car was behaving at such speeds. Very sharp and accurate. Loved it.

P.S. Thanks for spotting me man. 2 years on Team BHP and I got spotted just yesterday. Feels good.

P.P.S. BTW, I was listening to "Naman Natwara Vismaykara..." from the Balgandharva album. Feels good that people in ultra modern cars(My Vista might not be too ultra modern :-) ) still like the music from golden age.

^^ Agree-- ajay has been spotted not once but twice before, it seems!

But you have to feel sympathy for him. The guy is so starved of sightings, everytime he spots a TBHPian, there is a near-accident .

Just kidding. Spottings are real fun. I have had more than my fair share in the past couple of weeks, wince the pre-monsoon showers started. I guess when it rains, people tend to synchronise their arrival/departure times- that may also explain the crazzy traffic on the roads whenever it starts!

Talking re: Team-BHP Stickers are here! Post sightings & pics of them on your car

spotted a silver M800 with several stickers in KHarghar, Navi Mumbai.

i've had another spotting (blue Swift) in the same place where the driver sprinted and disappeared; so i chased this one to make sure it was a TBHPian.

it was indeed!! met samarth.bhatia in the M800 he fondly calls SS80.
we chatted for over an hour!!

good meeting you!!

Few spottings:

1) Grey i10 near silkboard flyover few days back. It was parked on left side of the road (Had spotted the same car at the same location few weeks back)

2) White M800 in Salarpuria Infozone Ecity parking lot last week - It had few TBHP stickers

3) Today - Green BEAT near silkboard flyover today morning around 11.45. It had LTD sticker on rear bumper (centre). You went towards Madiwala

4) Today - White Safari (KING) near Infy bus stand - noticed you when you flashed your lamps, thought you were heading towards Salarpuria. Where did you go?

I spot amitwlele's car so many times, that I have lost the count. Most of the times though, I am on foot, so cant honk or flash () when on foot.

When where ? I despise bikewalas who behave like truck drivers driving in the middle of the road right next to the divider. Hope you were not doing that when I passed by

you might consider saying "Honk Honk" aloud and then batting your eyelids

Technically you can 'flash', but you may attract lots of attention
just kidding!

Paud road; somewhere on the mess of a road between Hotel Kinara and Rambaug colony. I also reported spotting you (as did mmxylorider)

Naah, I was in my left lane (to the your rear left). When I joined the road at Hotel Kinara you were already ahead of me. You decided to move to the left lane and I could have very well rear ended you right at the tbhp sticker on your bumper. Thankfully I was looking right at the sticker, so swerved on time

Sorry about that dude. Didn't mean to scare you but then it is one of the challenges driving in the city. I adhere to the principle when in Rome do as the Romans. So when in MH-14 land I drive the way the others do instead of standing out like an idiot following traffic rules . However when I enter areas like Paud Road and city interiors I try to humbly sync up with two wheelers who swerve left and right. If I drive in one lane I can imagine the umpteen times I would be cursed at , given looks and have to listen to the wonderful language of passing bikers and perhaps auto drivers.
